Technical Assistance Guidelines Tribal Guidance

The Technical Assistance Guidelines Tribal Guidance is on a later timeline that the rest of the document to allow sufficient time for Tribal public comment. SGC anticipates finalizing this section of the TA Guidelines in April 2021.

The Tribal Appendix provides tools, tips, and best practices to State agencies seeking to design and implement effective TA and capacity building programs to serve California Native American Tribes. SGC designed the TA Guidelines to help State agencies to both deliver effective TA and develop internal policies, standards, or practices to guide their provision of TA, as directed by Senate Bill 1072 (Leyva, 2018). The draft Tribal Appendix recognizes Tribes’ unique relationship with the State and the specific considerations agencies developing Tribal TA programs should make in light of this relationship.

In order to develop the document, SGC worked in partnership with Tribal liaisons from multiple State agencies. While State agencies serve as the main audience for the draft Tribal Appendix, Tribal governments and stakeholders seeking to provide Tribal TA will likely find the manual useful as well.
